Should I stay or should I go?

eu_youthI have no good stories to tell you about the EU. The high ideals on which the Union was founded are currently burning in a banlieue outside Paris or drowning on the shores of Sicily. Politicians from both sides of the political spectrum have failed, at home and abroad, to inspire younger generations to believe in the European project and to reshape its revolutionary message for the new century. I’m not asking you to gallivant to the polls tomorrow, or to blindly accept an inevitable status quo. I’m just asking you not to give up hope, to stick together to answer crucial questions about our future and to plan, elbow-to-elbow, a more human project – not merely focused on economics only – to fully exploit the innumerable talents and the relentless passion of the EU’s dysfunctional dwellers.

Happy referendum!
